Time Limit for Initial Examination Increased

The Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI) informs that due to the high number of Swiss applications for the registration of trademarks, the time limit for the initial examination has been increased to four months from the date of the payment of the filing fee and any class surcharges. Within this time limit, IPI will either confirm that the trademark is to be accepted for registration in the register or inform of any deficiencies which can be subsequently remedied within a given time limit.
